STORAGE

* BurnSafes can be loaded and stored ready for deployment when needed
* Placing Burnsafes in individual plastic bags/containers helps protect hands from incidental contact with chemical agent residue
* Remove BurnSafes from plastic bags/containers when ready to deploy
* Replace plastic bags after each use
* Store BurnSafes in external vehicle/storage areas

DEPLOYMENT

* Put on your gas mask
*Wear protective clothing, gloves, helmet and eye protection
* Remove from plastic storage bag/container
* Ensure the bouchon, BurnSafe cap and CS canister assemblies are firmly secured to each other and to the BurnSafe bodies
* Prep then pull-pin
* Ensure spoon activates and CS canister ignites - smoke flows from ports
* Deploy

INSPECTION/CLEANING

* BurnSafes MUST be inspected before and after each deployment
* BurnSafes MUST be cleaned thoroughly after each deployment
* Latex gloves are recommended when handling BurnSafes for inspection and cleaning
* Clean in a well ventilated area
* Unscrew cap from body
* Unscrew CS canister from cap and discard
* Use a wire-brush, detergent and warm water to clean the tar-like residue out - do not use  any solvents or chemicals that are flammable like WD-40
Ensure the ports are clear of residue and any obstructions
The Lantern utilizes a channel at the base and ports in the body to allow the CS gas to vent - ensure the channel / ports are clear
*Once the BurnSafes are thoroughly cleaned, reload and store.

GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS

*DO NOT USE "SMOKE GRENADES" - Smoke grenades use a different chemical formula to produce smoke with a substantial increase in flame and heat which is significantly different than the formula / process used by CS Grenades
* Ensure CS canisters are current - check dates on canisters to make sure they have not expired
* BurnSafes can be reloaded during tactical operations, however, ensure that the ports are clear
* Adequate safety precautions should be in place prior to use such as fire extinguishers, etc.
* Once per year it is recommended that the BurnSafes be bead blasted and powder-coated

***UPDATE
It is IMPERATIVE that Burnsafes are NEVER PRE-LOADED. 

WAIT TO LOAD Burnsafe AT THE TARGET when you are ready to deploy it.  If pre-loaded, the munition's oxidizers can escape the canister and pose a flash fire hazard.

***THE SPEDE-HEAT MUNITION from SAFARILAND(formerly Deftech) has changed its ingredients.  DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, use this CS canister in the Lantern Burnsafe
